WoW: The Heart Goes Last by Margaret Atwood


Hosted by Breaking the Spine

Happy Wednesday everyone, hope you're all having a great day. Sometimes I feel that this meme is no good for me because I just keep on adding to my ever growing to-be-read list, and let me tell you its a very long one! But hey this new book by Margaret Atwood sounds right up my alley! 

Living in their car, surviving on tips, Charmaine and Stan are in a desperate state. So, when they see an advertisement for Consilience, a 'social experiment' offering stable jobs and a home of their own, they sign up immediately. All they have to do in return for suburban paradise is give up their freedom every second month- swapping their home for a prison cell. At first, all is well. But then, unknown to each other, Stan and Charmaine develop passionate obsessions with their 'Alternates', the couple that occupy their house when they are in prison. Soon the pressures of conformity, mistrust, guilt and sexual desire begin to take over.

So this sounds a bit different, perhaps a bit winky face too but I'm interested to read another book by Atwood!

What are your WoW choices this week? Tell me in the comments I'd love to know what you're waiting to read :-)
